It's hard to miss Burg Square, the site of the city hall and bustling cafes. The attraction has been an administration hub since its construction. The 1376 city hall building is known as one of the Bruges' most beautiful landmarks, but it has some competition in the square with Charlemagne's cathedral and the Renaissance civil registry. In fact, almost every era of European architecture is represented in the surrounding buildings. Sit down at one of the cafes to people-watch against the backdrop of grandiose buildings and monuments. Put Burg Square and other Bruges attractions into our Bruges travel route builder website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Elegant medieval square where all the people meet. Very busy during daylight , more quiet after 18:00 o' clock. Many restaurants around the square and many tourist guides. Cannot miss it, from here.....  more

  • Brugge is definitely one the most charming cities in Europe. In every corner there is a beautiful building to admire, every place is photogenic, as if the whole city itself was designed specially for pictures! Just buy a bag of authentic Belgian chocolate and taste it while walking randomly by the lovely streets!
  • Lovely, energetic space. Often a band or something playing in the centre. Many restaurants surround it, but they are pretty pricey. Beautiful at night. The Belfry plays often, and is beautiful.
